Match Preview: Hull FC vs Saints – R17

Saints return to Betfred Super League action on Monday as we face Hull FC back at the MKM Stadium with kick off at 7.45pm.


St Helens arrive into this one on the back of that famous Betfred Challenge Cup success at Wembley. However it has been over two week’s since we were last in competitive action after our last two Super League games were postponed due to a number of covid cases.

But Kristian Woolf, fresh from extending his Saints stay into 2022, will have his troops fit and ready to return to action – even if he was only able to name a 20 man squad.

It’s our first visit back to Hull FC’s newly named MKM Stadium since that famous Grand Final thriller last season which saw Jack Welsby win the Super League for Saints!

Hull have lost their last two Super League games. The first was a 40-26 away defeat to Huddersfield before they lost at home to Leeds Rhinos by 22 points to 12.

Saints have won their last ten meetings with Hull FC. Hull’s last victory against the Saints was an 8-6 Super 8s away win on 11 August, 2017. St Helens have also won on their last four visits to the MKM Stadium. Hull FC’s last home victory against the Saints was 24-14 on 10 March, 2017.

We will compete for the Steve Prescott Trophy with Saints ahead in the aggregate scores after a 34-16 victory over Hull FC in Round 8.
